This judgement entered in for well over 1 million at 12% interest. Following years of incarceration I am facing an impossible debt. I am at a lost on how to even navigate this whole situation whether bankrupcty is possible or not. Being able to su...
Civil judgements in Washington are enforceable for a period of ten years, and can be renewed for a period of another 10 years. If the original judgment is 10 years old, you need to see if it's been renewed. If it hasn't, then it's stale and cannot be used against you so long as it's not tied in with your criminal restitution. Have a consultation with an experienced bankruptcy lawyer. You may not even need to file bankruptcy if this debt is too old.See question
I am permanent disabled and on SSI. This is my only income. I no longer have to pay child support because of disability, but owe some arrears. DCS is reporting to my credit and they put I owe $25 a month.
This sounds accurate from what I have seen.See question
This is brought to my attention now, as I tried to get a home loan. There is an open superior court judgement against me for $11,000.00 . Date filed was in 2011. I have no clue where to go from here? Should I call the creditor and openly discuss ...
Mr. Granvold's answer is spot-on. I can help you unwind this and negotiate if you need it.See question
My 3 yrs is up today and I just found out after all these years I no longer have my attorney that I've been dealing with and I don't feel I should be stuck with almost 40,000 in bills when I was rear ended at a stop light.
If you just also found out that you no longer had an attorney that you thought was representing you, you may have a legal negligence claim against that lawyer.See question
I have filed a lawsuit for medical negligence and tenant law act violation, turns out its not tenant law act violation, and there was a verbal agreement made as well, medical negligence got dismissed but yet not dismissed all the way, the judge is...
A medical negligence case is when a doctor makes an error.
A landlord tenant case is something that governs the rental of Real Estate. You cannot have a verbal agreement about the rental of real estate according to something called the statute of frauds.
It sounds like the type of case you have is a premise liability case. This would mean that you have to prove that your landlord had a legal duty to you, that he violated that duty, that the violation of that duty directly led to your injuries, and what those injuries are. You have to prove all of those things in order to win.
These are challenging cases even for lawyers and I recommend that you find one to help you. As others have stated, personal injury lawyers often will work on a contingency fee, which means you don't have to pay fees up front.See question
In April of this year I was told by Va Hospital which I was being treated for (mst) military sexual trauma , I was sent to vfw to apply for disability a Washington state counselor began to stalk me send me crude emails(which I have) the state of W...
There are very good lawyers in the Seattle area who specialize in suing over sexual trauma and assault. I recomned that you get in touch with one of these lawyers (I am not one of them, but I know who they are). I don't think Avvo will let me list their names here, but if you send me a private message, I will give you their names to get in touch with. I am sorry you've had to go through this, and I commend you for being willing to stand up for yourself after such a terrible experience.See question
I didn't get a notice from my employer before it happened (it was sent later). I was not living at the address the summons was served to, it was served it to "John Doe Mason, father/resident" in 2008. (I have proof of not living there/lease agre...
You should truly get a lawyer to help you unpick this. To get a garnishment, they must have sued you, served you, and obtained a judgment against you. If you don't get a lawyer and get it undone very soon, you may miss deadlines to vacate the judgment and end up being legally liable for a debt that is not your own. Don't delay. I also wouldn't count on "working with them" because they may work with you just long enough for you to miss out on court deadlines for vacating the judgment.See question
The debt is so old that it's no longer on my credit report and my credit score is excellent. If I settle the debt and it's reported to the agencies as "cured" will it reflect poorly on my credit score? And/Or, will it not list on my credit report ...
It's reported on your credit report are reported for six years from the date of the last activity on the account. So, you could re-trigger another six year reporting period on something that has already fallen off. With the "cure" are you paying a judgment, or just a very old debt? If it is older than the statute of limitations and they have not sued you to preserve their rights, why pay it? It may be worth a quick call to a lawyer to sort out the details before you do anything to risk your now-good credit (congratulations!).See question
I got a writ of garnishment for unpaid medical bills. 2 weeks later I got a letter from the same medical group that all my bills would be cleared with the financial assistance they offer from May/2008 moving forward. But they've already started ga...
Because the attorneys handling the garnishment for the medical group may not be aware of the decision by the financial assistance office, you should fax them a copy of the letter wiping out the debt ASAP. However, you may need to get a lawyer to help you coordinate this and stop the garnishment. It shouldn't be too expensive as it sounds like you just need help getting the right hand to know what the left hand is doing.See question
I'd like to know the benefits pros and cons about filing another bankruptcy?
A lot of other attorneys have answered your questions about the timing of being able to file a bankrutpcy, but we haven't yet addressed the pros and cons. Whether or not you should file another bankrutpcy really depends on your own personal situation: your income, your debts, and whether you can find another way out. The pros of a bankruptcy is that you'd be rid of debt again, but if you're going to be right back in the same situation in another eight years, then this probably isn't the answer for you either. Bankruptcy impacts your credit score, your auto insurance rates, the rates you pay for credit to buy a new car, and can impact your housing choices, etc. The pros and cons must be weighed together. A consultation with a compassionate bankruptcy laywer may be worth it to find out your choices and the consequences of each.See question
